After its successful outing in Lilongwe in 2016, Love Malawi Festival is back for its second edition and, this time, it will be held at Kamuzu University of Health Sciences (KuHeS) Complex in Blantyre.
The three-day festival promises a lot as its package includes preaching, sports and music exploits coming from, among others, Faith Mussa, Skeffa Chimoto, Shammah Vocals, Kamuzu Barracks and renowned American singer and songwriter of Christian worship music Donald James Moen.
Moen, famed for hits such as ‘Our Father’ and ‘God Will Make A Way’ also performed at the festival in 2016.
The artist is expected in the country on Friday or Saturday.
The festival, which is organised by a grouping of inter-faith church leaders in conjunction with United States-based evangelist Andrew Palau, starts on Friday and ends on Sunday.
Speaking during a press briefing organised by the group, Palau said he was delighted to be back in Malawi as this is the second time for the festival to happen in the country.
Palau said the motive of the festival was to express the love of Jesus to all who would listen and accept to transform their lives for Christ.
“I am happy to be back in Malawi. The first time we were in Malawi, before my father went to be with the Lord, he was excited to hear about our return to Malawi, particularly in Blantyre,” he said.
Reverend Grey Mwalabu coordinator of the festival, called upon Malawians to grace the event pledging not only fun but life-changing experience.
“In regards to the pandemic in our midst, we are working with Ministry of Health so that we come up with ways to exercise all Covid precautionary measures,” Mwalabu said.
As of yesterday, the festival had already started mounting the stage.
